The more I look at JDE programs and reports, the more I hate JDE code and the 
more I pity the poor individuals that have to look at it.

Here is my problem. I am trying to modify the Purchase Order Receiver Document 
report (R43510) under JDE 7.1 to look the way we want it to.

I've noticed that it seems to not really care about the field names on the 
report.  The program that calls the report defines a DS structure with most of 
the report fields in it, like so:
Heading DS                      100
                                 1 25  line1
26 50 line2
51 75 line3
76100line4

On the report they have a heading like so
                R HEADING
                    Line1        25A
                    Line2        25A
                    Line3        25A
                    Line4        25A

Problem is that the print file doesn't seem to care about the fields, if I 
switch them around the data comes out in the same order no matter what I do.  
Almost like passing a string parameter to a program and receiving the string in 
a variable structure.  No matter how you change the program, the parameter is 
passed in the same way.

Any ideas?
